my f.a.m.i.l.y



our family. We are a strange BIG band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.....and its called LOVE !!!!

Sure....at first I was like "Micah why can't we get just ONE normal photo?" But hey, who says we are normal! I love the diversity of every single child! The quietness, loudness, craziness, seriousness, humbleness, studious, not-so studious, work-a-holics, take it easy, messy, orderly, big spenders, hoarders, private, tell-all, dreamers, realistic, shy, boisterous, blondes, brunettes, tall, short, thin, muscular, soft, spongy, brown eyed, blue eyed, kinda group we got over here! God has been so creative and merciful to us and I am a thankful, grateful, proud mom.....and I will love this photo even more when I'm 90 cause it will make me remember how unique our family was!!!

What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot

My mom and I are followers of your blog, and I mentioned to her the other day how much I loved to see that you are taking pictures of your family. It seems as though you take them quite often and that is great! I agree with you that you will look back at these and cherish them forever. Even if you don't get a "good" one, the true characters shine in the ones that you do have and mind you, I haven't seen a bad one of your family yet! :) Such a beautiful picture.
